Who says you can’t incorporate superfoods into your weekend cocktail?!
If you’ve been following my stories on IG you know I’ve been on an evolving journey with food, fitness, and mindset changes for years!
I think it’s so fun how my journey is going. The twists and turns. The drops, the hills. The MOUNTAINS. The road blocks. But when I get my break throughs. They are MIND BLOWING.
Lately, instead of approaching nutritious foods as a punishment. I see it as fuel for my microbiome.
Please read Fiber Fueled to find out why it’s SO IMPORTANT to make your 39 TRILLION microbiota (good and bad bacteria) living inside you!
Basically when they are happy and fed a diverse amount of plants... you feel AMAZING. And weight falls off like nothing. It’s incredible. I’ve also noticed my anxiety has been so much more manageable. I’ve actually suffered pretty bad anxiety my whole life. I have good days and bad days... but eating whole REAL foods makes me feel so much better!
Any who, I also love a cocktail to kick off the weekend.
I also love finding ways to make the things I love but in a much healthier way.
